  • a Canadian citizen;
  • at least 18 years of age or older;

Am I on the Voter’s List?

The Voters’ List is an important facet of the municipal election. To make your voting experience as efficient as possible, ensure that your information on the Voters’ List is accurate. This will ensure that you receive a Voter Information Package that will contain all the information you need to vote.

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is legislated to provide the Voters’ List to municipalities to be used for their municipal elections. MPAC’s Voter Lookup program is now available for voters to add or confirm their information for the next Municipal Election being held in October. Visit www.voterlookup.ca or click the image below to verify that your name, qualifying address, date of birth, and school support are included and accurate to make your voting experience as seamless as possible.
